when can you feel your baby move?!!?

im 15 weeks pregnant this is my first pregnancy. i want to feel the baby move so bad. i dont know what it would feel like. and i dont know when you can possibly feel. i was told it can go to as early as 14 weeks.

can someone help me distinguish what it feels like?

I felt my baby kick first at roughly 18 weeks - i felt thudders from about 15 weeks on - i thought this was wind but i know now it was the baby - it will for most ppl though be about 20 weeks before you can feel anything that you are sure is a kick.  Everyone is different thou - my mate is 21 weeks now and hasnt felt a kick.  Mt sister was 24 weeks.  Dont worry your baby has been kicking for months already, just not strong ones for you to feel.  Enjoy your pregnancy...

i felt the first kick around 18 weeks. and they both were really going by 20 weeks. from 20 - 34 weeks those 2 did not stop. lol.

I didn't feel my baby move until around 17 weeks and I only felt her maybe twice but as soon as I hit 20 weeks I could distinguish what is her and what wasn't
So no worries your so close to feeling your little one move. also Congratulations on your pregnancy.

With my first I was 18 weeks and it was pure bliss!!! With this little man I am carrying now I felt him at 16 weeks. I was at the Britney Spears concert when I felt him for the first time! I think he was dancing to the music!!! : ) Now he is so big he feels like he is trying to push his way out of me!

Believe me in the next few weeks you will be able to tell when you are being karate chopped!!!!!

hi, your baby is still very small, and likely not kicking you hard enough yet, you can try laying on your back and placing your hand on your uterus, and just stay still, mayb youll feel something. =) believe me soon those little kicks will be painful

Im only 12 weeks but I feel flutters only, not kicks, I wasnt sure what it was because i never felt it prior to pregnancy. When I had my ultrasound my baby was very active and gliding back and forth. Now I know why.. But nothing major like kicks or anything I dont think you will feel that until later on in your pregnancy, No worries :-)

it kinda feels like gas i wanna say but when i felt it move for the first time i automatically knew it was the baby
i dont remember when i felt my first son move i think between 3 & 4 months
but the doctors usually say it varies with women
im currrently 18 wks pregnant and i started feeling movement around 13wks but they said its because its my second child you usually feel them sooner
but i was also told it depends on the size of the mother
smaller mothers usually feel movement sooner
but you should definately have movement by 20 wks
